Music Classes – 2016/17 calendar
Check here for DMEP calendar of music classes for 2016/17.
We’re close to capacity in our music classes, and the numbers involved in our performing groups are well up on last year. For instance, there are almost seventy registered for the Donegal Youth Orchestra in 2016 – 2017, and still the occasional new face being welcomed in. Donegal Youth Choir has also seen a surge in numbers to over the 50 mark. More adults are returned to music with Irene Donnelly-Tinney and Seamus McGuire and the inimitable Mind Your Quavers.
In all we have almost 500 people in music classes – strings, woodwind, piano, percussion, singing. Most of these are 1 – to – 1. And we have around 350 in performing groups. That’s a lot of music happening in this corner. Great!
